Are Merit Scholarships Threatening the Future of Private Colleges?
Riggs, Henry E.
Trusteeship, v2 n3 p6-10 May-Jun 1994

Such tuition discounting is seen as particularly problematic for private colleges, misleading to students, and potentially disastrous for economically disadvantaged students. (MSE)
